Is there something unique in her personility or appearance? I named my dog Shaggy because his hair sticks out everywhere. We had a rat terrier named Miss Marble because when she curled up to sleep that was what she looked like.
My grandparents had 2 many years ago , one was Agnes the other was nickanmed Bug (short for a bad british word, noone could remeber his name after he was given the nickname cause he was a right Bug***!) My favorite 2 BC clients are names Emma and Sheba
tess, fen, nell, bracken, ivy. I like simple names that sound don't sound anything like the words they will be expected to know. I also try to stay away from names that sound similar to dogs I already have. Try googling border collie names too. I think there's a big list of them somewhere. I like Pip, that's a good name.
My girls names are . Rhys, Dell, Kue, Dee, and Hannah
Google "border collie names" and you'll finds tons of good suggestions. We got a new BC two months ago; wife is training him to be an agility dog. His name is Journey. I thought it was weird at first but it's grown on me.
"Panda" is one of mine, appropriate because of his white face. ("Scout" is the other, named that simply because I was in the process of reading - for the umpteenth time - "To Kill a Mockingbird" when we got her.)
Lisa, your BC is beautiful! Border Collies are my favorite breed. Our BC was named Huck. Sadly, he died of cancer at age three a little over three years ago. I still can't talk about him without crying. BCs are very special dogs.
A picture and description of her personality would help. I truly believe a dog will respond to the right name. All our pets are given Irish names now...names that fit them. Hubby and I go to this website www.babynamesofireland.com/index.html and go down the list of the names until we find one that the dog responds to, or one that describes something about the dog ( like our dog Darcy...Darcy means "little dark one" and she is a small black dog).
